The Apopka Charlie Graingers is on schedule to open early in March, according to owner/operator Ken Maltby.
“I was raised in Apopka but moved to Amelia Island when I was in junior high school,” said Maltby. “My grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles all graduated from Apopka High School. We are excited to bring this new but simple concept to Apopka and will be adding two more locations in the near future.”
Charlie Graingers is known for its unique hot dogs, brisket and BBQ.
The new restaurant is located next to the new Tijuana Flats in the Victory Plaza shopping center at 921 West US Highway 441. The Apopka restaurant is now listed on the company’s “Coming Soon” section on its website.
Charlie Graingers’ menu features 19 different hot dog items with names such as the Peacock, the Mailman, the Emerald Coast, the Wildcat, the Jamaican, the Cape Fear and many more.
If you are not a big hot dog fan, that’s okay, since Charlie Graingers also offers “housemade sandwiches”, salads and various sides.
Charlie Graingers is a fairly new company with five locations in North Carolina and two each in Florida, Mississippi and South Carolina.
But the company has big plans to open more than 100 locations in Florida.
